I wish it had a space for that. I didn't register, because I don't
know what the current Canon models are; when I'm shopping for a
printer and the salesman starts to lead me to the Canon area,
I say "No thanks, I use Linux, so show me your Epsons."
And when I say "Linux" they nod understandingly and stop trying
to sell me a Canon -- I get the impression that I'm not the
only person who's brought that up.

I'd happily tell them that if their survey had a space for it.
